Subject: Puzzling
Stop - go film with short clips of Standard gas station attendant alternating between scenes of sports and an old guy sitting at a table in a restaurant.

At the end there is a scene showing the Standard gas pumps with the crowns twirling around. I do recall that..but it didn't last for long far as I remember.

Subject: Hey Jimmy, What's The Score?
Usually I'm pretty good at detecting in Silent AB Rolls what the film is about and all that, but this one's got me befuddled. It looks like an older guy (which I'm pretty sure is Jimmy Conzelman, who is advertised in appearing) is complaining about how is car is functioning, and the Standard Oil fellows are happy go lucky to do whatever he asks. Then after that, is anyone's guess what's going on. Is Jimmy giving us rules of sports games? Tips? Critiques? It's hard to say, but it's really quite the jump, and I have no idea what's going on. :( Sorry.
